Another place to go online to search for cases and to
conduct other legal research for free is Casetext.
Casetext enables anyone to search for cases using a case
name, citation, keyword, phrase, or a proximity search (examples of search
queries on Casetext). Along with displaying the case itself,
Casetext provides its users with an easy way to quickly get to the parts of a
case that were most often cited. Links are also available to both summary and contextual
information about a case (including briefs).
The distinguishing feature of Casetext is the supplemental
material provided by users themselves. Lawyers, law professors, clinicians, and
others can post analysis, leave comments, or link to other websites that provide
more insight into a case. On several community pages (organized by area of law)
users can find longer posts and links to other documents. More information
about Casetext’s features.
Signing up for an account on Casetext is not
required, but it’s free and makes more of its features available.
